Stop by Friends Book Sale before author talk and book signing 
The Cumberland County Public Library will host the Edward Clown family, nearest living relatives to the Lakota war leader Crazy Horse, on Feb. 16 at Headquarters Library, 300 Maiden Lane, at 2 p.m. for a book discussion and signing.  
In their book “Crazy Horse: The Lakota Warrior’s Life & Legacy”, the family clarifies inaccuracies and shares their story about the past, including the family genealogy and what it means to them to be Lakota. The family will discuss the life of Crazy Horse and his motivations, his death, and why they chose to keep quiet with their knowledge for so long before finally deciding to tell the truth as they know it. 
Before the program, shop the Friends of the Library Public Book Sale in the basement of Headquarters Library from 1 to 4 p.m. There are thousands of books, CDs, DVDs and other library-related items in good condition at unbeatable low prices.
